My mobile is on its way to the lab so I hope I will soon know what's going on with it.
Maybe a factory reset solves the issue, if you want, you can try and share your findings.
Make sure to give it a day or two after resetting to make sure it's not there anymore.
Related to car chargers. Since I stopped using my car charger issue has stopped.
It has taking a few day of using factory charger but it has solved my issue for the moment.
DO NOT USE 1.0amp or 2.1amp charger.
Go to samsung spend the money for a proper charger and protect the phone rather then damage it and say its Samsung's fault.
Although I do think that Samsung should put a press release or at least a post about this. So far it's the community doing all the work. I had faith in you guys cause of my s3 I had for almost 10 years. I still use to this day lol.
Dont let me down samsung come on
Now did I have this issue prior to the update, no definitely not. So I do think the update has confused some software program but since I stopped with the car charger it stopped prompting these messages and my screen stays off 95% of the time. Other 5% is the light sensor when it pulls out my pocket or lighting changes.
Just started having the same problem (22nd september) no clue what to do. Has anyone tried a factory reset? Not ideal but if it fixes the issue then I'd be willing
Mine was in the lab, they said there was a bit of corrosion so they replaced the USB port and now it's ok. Because it was on a small part it will be fixed under warranty.
I ask how come and they said it can be moisture, it can be the charging head that connects to the phone, etc etc... I have a mobile phone for more than 20 years now and never had nor heard about this issue.
I wonder if something is bad with the phone design that caused this issue but without Samsung checking this, all we have is this discussion.
